Eric Stonestreet plays the openly gay Cameron Tucker on “Modern Family,” but in real life, he says he’s “openly straight.” And Eric has found himself a new girlfriend and I’m SO relieved because she’s not Bethenny Frankel. No, Eric is dating a lovely pediatric nurse named Lindsay Schweitzer. They reportedly met at a charity event in Kansas City back in June. She was there fundraising and he was there as one of the celebrity guests.
Lady Gaga’s fans are hopeful that she and Taylor Kinney will figure things out and get back together! Or maybe that’s just me….But Taylor was spotted at Gaga’s concert in Chicago last week! That’s a good sign, right? A source told Us Weekly that we should read too much into it. The source says the two of them talk or text every day and meet up when they’re in the same city, but there’s nothing romantic going on. She’s apparently still seeing her agent, Christian Carino.
Kendall Jenner isn’t going to be part of this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. She didn’t even audition for it. That’s because she’s got a multi-million dollar deal to promote another line of lingerie — La Perla! Meantime, Kendall is the recipient of the first ever Fashion Icon of the Decade award at the Fashion Media Awards ceremony during New York Fashion Week. This news is receiving what you might call a “confused” reaction on social media, considering that a decade ago, Kendall was only 11 and she’s only been modeling for a minute.
The director behind “Look What You Made Me Do” has Taylor Swift’s back! Joseph Kahn read one negative comment too many, so he went on Twitter to defend his girl, tweeting, “If I plan something as a man I’m a ‘genius.’ If Taylor as a woman plans something she is ‘manipulative.’ Double standards. This is wrong.” Before the video was released, people were already accusing Taylor of ripping off Beyonce. Joseph tweeted, “I’ve worked with Beyonce a few times. She’s an amazing person. The #LWYMMDvideo is not in her art space. Love and respect to Bey.” Despite all the noise, Taylor’s video was averaging 30K views per minute in its first 24 hours and now holds the record for the most YouTube and Vevo global streams in a 24-hour period.
Jamie Foxx announced on Instagram that there will be a telethon on September 12 to raise money for Hurricane Harvey victims. The telethon will be broadcast for one hour on network television from three host cities — LA, NY and Nashville. Jamie said, “Just wanted to let everyone in Texas know, we got you.” He apparently answered Kevin Hart’s call-out when he added that he’s personally donated $25K to Global Giving’s Harvey relief efforts. Jamie is a Texas native, born and raised in Terrell, and he’s going to be one of the hosts of the LA portion of the telethon. Hilary Duff may serve as one of the LA hosts. She was born in Houston. Reese Witherspoon and Blake Shelton are signed on to help out in Nashville. And in NYC, they’re tying to lock down Houston natives Michael Strahan and Kelly Rowland. And another Houston native, Jim Parsons of the “Big Bang Theory,” will be most likely be involved.
